And I I have that problem I'm full of hyperbole and scientists aren't and I love that about them and they care about the mess they care about the facts and I hear all that and I read all that and then I'm just like oh his blitz. He's some poetry so I remember Reading Steven Weinberg's book the first three minutes of the universe and it's full of great fact so this was my interpretation mango juice squeezing from the heavens technically correct Richt by the way the physicists would disagree in that universe buddies taking a obviously a poetic license. But that's what I as a poet what I can never find the right words and the reason the movie dirty dancing connected so well with me. Is that moment. That one of the main characters is carrying a watermelon win and she goes up to Patrick swayze who she likes and says. I carried a watermelon. And that's all she can say and that is what I am like so often. I can't find the exact words and I love that about science that they can find words really matter and in a scientific communication or scientific paper hyper words mean everything but I love as a poet. I can sort of pie around with that and Taika Pot. Isn't it interesting that you draw contrast because as I often think when I'm reading your work that infect poetry and science scherer conciseness and brevity of language precision each word gets placed with intent. And yet your thinking of the relationship is quite contrasted. I totally understand what you're saying. And Brevity is so true and as a poet and I'm sure poets in the audience. They can understand this. Every word matters this and carries it's white but the thing is how do you communicate dark matter. Or how do you communicate Nebula something in biology or does I mean I can never find the right words. I love in contact. A film inspired by. Carl Sagan's book by the same. I'm Nice Cellular pinup boy. I'm so glad it was there. I didn't know you were gonNA talk about him. When demon haunted world is such an important political inspiring because well the Jodi foster character Elliott Airway says when she's thrust into space they should have center poet and finally why Korea I get to go in space so maybe on Amazon or something? I'll get to go just to ago. Mango juice everywhere. Do you feel like you could take sides. Or is that that's not your raisin for you all the Wanda I'm about to wonder in storytelling. I do understand that sometimes the failure of can you just beautifying science and that is somehow not enough and and that's why I love what so many people do is they take it apart in question and what aren was hanging is just so incredible what they do but I yes yeah so just like the storytelling and I really need to communicate it to audiences so they can just take away a little bit of wondering their pocket full of wonder. Hey John Adams Americans said you never learn if you have a poet in your pocket. I just loved that I said what are you trying to do with. I've seen your show particle wave. which takes you inside a planetarium? Describe it for people but also what you're hoping to do with that piece it's musical visual Poetic Extravaganza yes. I loved canvas of the Planetarium Dome and from when I was young and a lot of you would feel feel the Siamese diaby lie back. And you've got this gorgeous. Almost three sixty canvas above you and so I wanted to use that canvas to sell tell held. The story of gravitational waves got to work with a lot of scientists and I recorded a lot of scientists and I want the general public to coming and have a sense of awe four so it mixes poetry music visuals just to tell the story from general relativity some black holes look lookit to kill an and just sort of pint pitcher and I want people to come out and say well I might go read up on that but I had a science instinct come in an eighteen year old. He said that she walked in wanting to do chemistry and came out wanting to do gravitational wave astronomy. And I'm like my works done. That's enough poet delicious. Sometimes there when you think about rap song lyrics what comes to mind politics. Maybe six drugs love last year. American crime and punishment. Absolutely what about science though not really well here as Baba Brinkman canadian-born and and married to a neuroscientist at some point these graduate in comparatively chat court the science bug big time and he's now a renowned science communicate through he's rap gods to things like climate change evolution human nature religion and culture my first rap theater popularisation project CHAUCER's Canterbury Tales and a An evolutionary biologists in England saw that and he said good job. Now do you think you could do for Darwin. What you did for Chaucer and the first time I was introduced to do a performance which was at the Darwin Bicentennial Mark Pailin? The biologist introduced me by saying. Don't worry I checked his lyrics. You're about to witness the first ever rap performance. That's peer reviewed house like peer reviewed rap. That's the best idea ever confession. Spend my whole life perplexed. By Religiousness Front doorstep debating with Jehovah Witnesses I was a teenaged empirical thinker a spiritual seeker obsessed with rap. I considered it liberal research. This was the medium the Daca thinking speaking flipping ridiculous speech over beats like every weekend weekend my CD collection became my personal gospel. I wasn't apostle I think part of it was an unexpected side effect of doing science. This communication rap projects and that side effect was that I became way more gangster rapper and partially. That's because I used to be a communicator of my ideas in the humanities and interpretations of symbols and it all felt very woolly but the first time I did a rap show about Darwin I was I'm representing the scientific consensus around the factual basis of common human origins and natural selection as the key origin of complexity Adaptation in nature. Take it with me or the Army of scientists that you know. I kind of found this like voice in the science communication wraps that I had never had in my previous work doc because of the confidence of this is the best of our knowledge. And don't worry I checked and then when I'm up on stage it'd be.

"taika pot" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"This is fresh air i'm terry gross in the nineteen eighties the world of open ocean sailboat racing was pretty much all male that is until our guest tracy edwards decided she assemble an all female crew to enter the grueling and dangerous thirty three thousand mile whitbread round the world race as you'll hear the idea was unthinkable to most of men in the world of yacht racing and the journalists who covered them the remarkable story of edwards and her crew is told a new documentary directed by alex holmes titled maiden which was also the name of the yacht she sailed in the race the film opens in theaters tomorrow tracy edwards had an unhappy childhood after her father died and her mom remarried she ran away from home as a teenager major way to greece and fell in love with sailing she wanted so badly to compete that she signed on as a cook for an all-male crew on around the world race though she learned a lot about sailing she had no luck getting on as a crew member she talked about her story with fresh air steve davies we'll tracy edwards welcome to fresh air so as i gather from the documentary decided you're never going to get accepted as a crew member on around the world race so you decided well you're just going to start your own how did you pull that off is i did look at the world of sailing and thought i need to change the shape of this because i don't fit in here and so you know my mom was told me if he didn't like the way the world looks change it so i thought i i will i thought the easiest way i'll make that makes me the easiest way to do that would just be it's female crews together and you know it just proved we can do it and everyone would accept it in the everything will be fine but that was fall from what happened you know we had so much obstruction and and criticism and i'm go which i found ready quite strange why would you be angry that we won't sat around the world it's putting you out which is to thing so it some he was a strange process i i started out pushing an old female chris gather because aliens to prove that we could do but also so that i could the navigator which is quite a selfish reason and then as we as we went home with us and it people thought it was so impossible i thought i've just raised around the world it's not difficult right and will you had to figure out we had fi- abode and i gather you had a house that you mortgaged right and put an borrowed money and then you end the women that you recruited worked on restoring this boat it yourself and it it needed a lot of work right yes it did we we got to the point where we we been trying for so long to raise money the sponsorship to design and build or buy which of course all the other day and i just i realized one day that that's going to happen there are times when you do have to admit fade it and go into different direction this is one of those times and so we found an old secondhand racing yacht with a pedigree and that was she was cooled prestige at the time that before that she'd been disclosed three and had been designed built for p._f. elman in the one eighty two it program the world rice where she hadn't actually done that well when we both in the summer of eighty-eight of issues in a terrible state and we put on a ship when we go back to the u._k. and then i gave skill sledgehammers i said right taika pot and we did i mean we stripped the inside of the vote we stripped the deck we took the most without week we took everything apart was it was it unusual for crew members to to do the repairs on their own boat is that what is that what the guys did it was absolutely unique completely unique all these other guys had a show team they had brand new boats so they didn't really needs to anywhere from them and you know so they'd sit in the cafe and watches us as we was putting this put together although savvy there was a very nice part of that sort of being pastas big whitbread family is if you did go for help you would ninety nine point nine percent of the time you'd get it you you know you might get a bit of a slight weight i've you need help kind of thing but then you know we were like is company chooses but the crate sing about doing what we did the way we did it was we learn everything we needed to know about the boat we put every single item into that vote onto that boat we painted her we put the rig which at the rigging which electron ix the plumbing the naff station the raking so when we put maiden in the wosa i would say that we us as a crude you up better than any other team in the race which would come in handy later on you got the boat and even if you fix it up you still need a lot of money because the this is a race that takes months and you need schorr cruise to help and so you need a sponsor and typically corporations would sponsor a cruise you couldn't get that and you got some help as the result of a kind of a kind of a chance association you'd made the past tell us about this so i know my life which i'll say surreal i was a stewardess on the chelsea in newport rhode island and we had a very secretive very important high profile guests and we didn't Earlier this is in one thousand nine hundred fool, so in one thousand nine hundred I was working as a student, I saw this Chelsea, but we had a surprise guest. You know very. wit she we thought it might be ted kennedy of anybody who we went off to mouth has been yelled the whole boat was checked you know we have a navy sniffer dogs at diva's then we went down the boat that night we who as this person and it turned out to be king hussein and queen noel and they just being says prince up his graduation and they came for day sailing and i was washing up off to lunch and i felt this presence beside me and i tend round and it was king hussein and had he had a tea towel in his hand i said i didn't you can do that he said i can do anything king okay i mean i didn't really know who he was if i'm perfectly illness i was twenty one years old newspaper since i left home but there was something quite extraordinary about this man and he was fascinated with what i did and kings people collector he and it wasn't just me i mean he people from all over the world all walks of life he found people interesting fascinating he loved he loved his fellow human being and i think that's what made him such an extraordinary leader and why jordan is a such a place of stability in the middle east today an and he encouraged me to do the five eight six race then when i was putting maiden together he was always there in the background was on the end of the phone needed help or advice but when i go to the point where i thought i can't spend any more time looking for this money in two years as we had bits and pieces of money and donations and stuff but no big sponsor i called him up and i told him he went off goodness sake he said right he said relative lines is going to be you'll sponsor and Just berlin. just having not struggle for money anymore it's amazing and then of course she ended up this peaceful gray color with the red in the gold stripe because that's the color of roy joe tynan airline's planes I have to ask he was always on the other end of a phone. How does one dial up Cain? You got a cell number. he left me his phone number for he left the boat and then before i go home to the u._k. he called my mum and when i i did a transatlantic home and i go to lymington because we didn't have cell phones nice day so i went to find a payphone i called my mother and she said what have you been up to nothing i i have literally just got off the bite of sailed across the atlantic she said some guy called king hussein keeps calling and i don't go please don't tell me you said you're the queen of shape and put the phone and she said no because knowing you i thought that was every likelihood that it would be so yes we this very strong and very close friendship and if i ever ever needed speak to him he would always get bites me will be on the end before chrissy edwards remarkable experience as skipper of the first all female crew to compete in and around the world sailing race is told in the new documentary maiden it opens in theaters this friday we'll be back and talk some more after a quick break this is fresh air fifty years ago a riot broke out at the stonewall bar in new york city it was a dramatic gesture of defiance the events of that night have been described as the birth of the gay rights movement but that's only partially true i'm ari shapiro more on the activism that came before stonewall and the movement that came out of it this afternoon on all things considered from n._p._r. news weekdays starting at four on w._n._y._c. This is fresh air man. We're speaking with Tracy Edwards. She assembled and led the first all female sailing crew to compete in an around the world race in nineteen eighty nine. That's the subject of the new documentary maiden. It opens in theaters this Friday. so you get the boat ready and you start going out and sailing and runs and there was actually a kind of a warm up race to the to the to the round the world race and There's some there's a leadership struggle in effect. I mean you your first made who is very experienced sailor. You decide you have to let her go because there's a question of sort of who's really in charge of the boat. And it was kind of a tough thing. and it became a media story when you came back because it fed into the narrative of oh it's a catfight these are swabbing women and i thought we just here this is a scene from the film that that's where we hear a member of your crew janney monday talking about the kinds of questions that she and the crew and you got from the media let's listen Few the Christians, they articles written about us at the time. the louis digging for stories on we'll whose boyfriend girlfriend lisbon's you sleeping around or surely you know getting on that well fun to women on a boat that size must be a lotta squabbles A bunch of bills. Well, you notice, one of the most the guys those questions they would be awesome about tactics challenges sale. since sporting questions we almost never gos- ask questions why and that's jenny monday she was on the crew of the maiden that was the ship that was by our guest tracy edwards had the first all female crew to compete in and around the world sailing race it's story is told in the new documentary maiden were you surprised at the media reaction that you got we want surprised that there was resistance to an female crew in the race you know sailing is one of the last bastions of patriarchy if you like and it is entrenched it's where maritime nation it's entrenched in our history in a wolf in.
